The man behind the Micro pro Mach 2 amp, Pat Quilter, is well known in pro audio circles for being part of the well reputed QSC brand of speakers.

This amp brings the same level of pro audio quality tweaked to meet the demand of guitarists, using an all analog design.

The amp section sports two 100-watt channels with 1/4" and XLR combo inputs.

It has a rotary switch knob that lets you choose between 6 voicings: Full Q, Lead, Smooth, Surf, Brown, Tweed - each one is said to be derived from sought after amps.

Other features include having a single Celestion Classic Lead 80 speaker, built-in reverb and tremolo, expanded EQ for channel 2 and an effects loop.

One of the surprising things about the MicroPro Mach 2 Combo 12 is the low weight coming in at just 27 lbs. - you won't find many other 200-watt combo amps lighter than this.

Gearank Recommendation

If you're familiar with the quality of QSC speakers, then choosing this amp is a no brainer. It is also good for those who want reasonable flexibility without going down the digital modeling route.

We previously had this amp on our recommended list for Solid State Guitar Amps, however there are now more highly rated options available in the $500 to $1500 price range.
